Disney Cruise Line Final Payment Extension and Cancellation Policy Update & Cruise Date Flexibility Option

Beginning today, March 5, 2021, a temporary final payment extension was added to Disney Cruise Line sailings through Sept. 30, 2021. In addition, we are temporarily relaxing our cruise cancellation fee schedule for sailings through Sept. 30, 2021. 

In addition, to give your Guests more peace of mind, Disney Cruise Line has recently extended its temporary Cruise Date Flexibility option, allowing them the option to change their sail day up to 15 days prior to their cruise. This means that for any new or existing cruises booked by April 30, 2021, for scheduled sailings on or before Sept. 30, 2021, they can change their sail date up to 15 days prior to departure.

SeaMails about this will be going out today. Below are samples of the messages being sent.

SEAMAIL TO GUESTS ON SEPTEMBER SAILINGS

Dear Guest,

All of us at Disney Cruise Line hope you and your family are staying well. We want to let you know we’ve temporarily modified our final payment and cancellation policies to provide you with greater flexibility.

For sailings through September 30, 2021, we are temporarily extending final payment until 60 days prior to sailing for Guests booked in unrestricted stateroom categories. This means that those Guests who have not yet reached their final payment due date can wait until up to 60 days prior to sailing to pay for their cruise vacation. Onboard cruise activities can be scheduled within your Castaway Club booking window once final payment is received.

In addition, we are temporarily relaxing our cruise cancellation fee schedule for sailings through September 30, 2021, as described below.

Additional details on the Cruise Date Flexibility Option can be found on our website at DisneyCruise.com.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard for your sailing and hope that this added flexibility is helpful.

Sincerely,

The Cast & Crew

*This temporary Cruise Date Flexibility is valid for new and existing reservations booked prior to April 30, 2021, and allows Guests to change their departure up to 15 days before their sailing for any cruise departing through September 30, 2021. Guests that wish to change their sail date must move to a future sailing that commences on or before September 30, 2022. Prevailing rates apply and Guests are responsible for any balance due after the reservation has been modified. Guests are unable to return to their original sail date once the reservation has been changed.

Standard air cancellation fees apply for Guests who booked flights through Disney Cruise Line.
